Youth Concerts with the hr Symphony Orchestra

"You enjoy going to concerts? In Frankfurt's Alte Oper we stage classical concerts especially for you. In these youth concerts of the hr Symphony Orchestra you experience fantastic worlds of sound. Canned music, like in the cinema or on CD, just cannot compete with this. And not only is the music marvellous, the price is too: "as inexpensive as a cinema ticket".

For more than 50 years the youth concerts of the hr Symphony Orchestra have proven that classic is not synonymous with boredom. All youth concerts are commentated. The audience is acquainted with the works by discussions with musicians, the conductor and sometimes also with the composer.

Concerts are exclusively for schoolchildren, students and trainees. Please do not forget to bring your school/student card.

Subscriptions and individual admission tickets can be purchased from the Jugend- und Sozialamt of Frankfurt am Main (Youth and Social Department)
